Are they playing this awful video in the stadium? I sure hope not. At least if it's only on cable, we can ignore it.

I love the history intro video, hope they didn't replace it.

It was cringe worthy. I had to turn it off several times, hoping it that it would end in a minute or two, not the entire song. I hate this type of hard, country, bro rock.

Personally, I hated it, but I can see that our team is filled with a bunch of younger guys that are big and brashy, so I guess if this video would make a 15 yr old boy say "wow, this is cool", I'm for it. We need more younger fans to bug their parents to come to the park on Sundays.

Never said I like it, or that it isn't bad. I just think that saying things like it's worse than watching someone die is a bit of an over reaction.

The problem is it's not only the concept that is bad, it's the execution. The lighting is terrible, the framing is terrible, the editing is terrible, and it looks like it was shot on a cell phone. It's bad from every single angle.

I thought the line "explosion of catastrophe" about summed it up.

Do you think there's any chance that's an April Fool's prank? I mean, it would be pretty hilarious if so.

Just people hoping/thinking it was an April Fool's Joke shows how bad it was.

I just thought it was in the "so stupid it's funny" camp. I don't mind it on TV but please someone tell me they didn't replace the White Sox history video before the game.

This was not even "fun" bad. Terrible production values and execution.
If they have replaced the wonderful days of yore video in favor of this crap I will boycott the ballpark.

On the other hand I thought the pie in the face video was fantasitc on many levels, including sarcasm at how the whole pie in the face thing had gotten way out of hand.

If they were going for cheesy and hokey, they succeeded.

If they were going for something good and that would pump up the crowd, not happening.

I don't doubt that they were probably trying to be a little silly and cheesy but this was just... awful. Awful.
